Berkeley County loses a woman who spent her days offering smiles

Posted: Updated:

The woman with a familiar face to many people in Berkeley County died over the weekend. Mary Lou Brown Davis-Selby passed away on Sunday.

Mary Lou recently retired from Berkeley County after working for several years at the information desk at Berkeley County's office building in Moncks Corner.

Berkeley County Councilman Tim Callanan says her smile and hugs will be missed, "You know, the power of a smile and a good morning, you know how that can really transform someone's day. She was an expert at it."

Her supervisor, Chip Boling says she was an ambassador for the county, "She made everybody feel welcome. She was just the epitome of what you'd want the face of Berkeley County to be."

The Deputy County Supervisor Kace Smith tells News 2 about one person she greeted in particular, "One day a gentleman came in, and being in her friendly way, she greeted him. And he would come in from time to time to do business, and they became quite smitten with each other… He had given her a ring, and low and behold, several months later, she got another ring."

Smith says Mary Lou married her sweetheart Ron Selby this past Valentine's Day weekend, "I think she played hard to get, but in the end she was very much in love with him, and I'm sure she was a very devoted wife for the short time they were married together."

Mary Lou leaves behind her husband Ron, and a son, Greg E. Davis and his wife, Laurie, a sister, Helen B. Lukow, a brother Henry Brown, Jr., and his wife Billye and two grandchildren, Elizabeth and Rob Davis.

The family is receiving family tonight from 5-7PM at Dial-Murray Funeral Home in Moncks Corner. The funeral takes place Wednesday at 1PM at First Baptist of Moncks Corner. She will be buried at St. John's Baptist Church Cemetery, Pinopolis.
